OK I think I need to spam this bug a bit.

While I agree that use cases and user stories are the way to go. There is no 
such thing as a simple use case for some features. Developers want to rank 
their stuff so they need COUNTS. And currently we have no simple way of 
exposing COUNTS.
The use case is for developers (developer case?) where the developer wants to 
enrich the sorting/ranking of his results.

"I want to know how many times a set of subjects was used without having
to ask for all the events and then iterate and count"

If the use case if going to be for actual users it would sound more like

"I want my search results to be sorted better" The user cares nothing
about how its done.

It is a simple as that.

Add new aggregate API

Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Confirmed

Bug description:
Zeitgeist API can give us vague information but not statistics over the API
Use case:
- Give me counts of every subject_text from actor = Unity
Currently to do that one will need to either:
Request all events with Unity as an Actor and count the subject_text
This can be done much better IMHO
I am thinking of an Aggregation Extension.
But before we hack on that we need to agree if its necessary and how the API 
will look like.
